Welcome to the City of Groton Police Department web page. The men and women of this department are committed professionals who provide high quality service to our residents and visitors on a daily basis.
With 9 civilians and 30 officers, the men and women of our department patrol and provide a wide array of services to a diverse city of 3.1 square miles and 10,000 residents.
The City of Groton is home to the Electric Boat division of General Dynamics, the Pfizer pharmaceutical company and the Avery Point Campus of the University of Connecticut.
We provide patrol services by foot, vehicle, boat and bicycle. Significant crimes are investigated by investigators from the detective and youth unit in conjunction with our area law enforcement partners.
The fiscal year ending June 30, 2012, the department responded to 19,149 calls for service, made 496 criminal arrests and investigated 193 motor vehicle accidents. This activity does not include the hundreds of interactions our officers have to comfort and assist members of the community.
From time to time, we recruit people from all walks of life with the highest personal integrity to join our department. We hope that you might consider a career opportunity in law enforcement.
Thank you for taking the time to visit this page. On behalf of the men and women of the City of Groton Police Department, I am
Chief of Police
